Asked by Woodworker, Franklin, WI • Mon May 18, 2009
The inspector said siding was not right and I need to contact a professional. The professionals (2) said job was not installed properly. Siding manufacturer's warranty will not honor improper installations of their product. So now responsibility is in the hands of the builder / sub, and they are coaching the owner that the job is right and just needs a little repair work. It is much more serious - this is fiber cement and nails have been installed into foam sheathing, offering no holding power and totally against manufacturer's installation instructions. I want out, but gave seller right to cure, but cure is not close to my expectations to have it made right. It means a complete redo of the house siding. $30K or more. Reason builder is concerned about this one is that there are other houses in the neighborhood with similar issues.
